- GeneID in DrosophilaG Parra
Grup de Recerca en Informàtica Mèdica, Institut Municipal d Investigacio Medica IMIM, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, E 08003 Barcelona, Spain
Genome Res 10:511-5. 2000..These results show that the accuracy of GeneID predictions compares currently with that of other existing tools but that GeneID is likely to be more efficient in terms of speed and memory usage...
- Eater, a transmembrane protein mediating phagocytosis of bacterial pathogens in DrosophilaChristine Kocks
Laboratory of Developmental Immunology, Department of Pediatrics, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts 02114, USA
Cell 123:335-46. 2005..Our results suggest that Eater is a major phagocytic receptor for a broad range of bacterial pathogens in Drosophila and provide a powerful model to address the role of phagocytosis in vivo...
